It's pretty hard to get them to leak, I think. They claim to have 42-48% less flow restriction than barbed tees, that's why I use them...we don't have much pressure around here.

I went down to the local irrigation store and had a look at the blazing saddles they look kind of neat. And I think to plug one off you use a 1' plug. There's a part that screws down in, you take it out and screw the plug in. However, I'm only guessing that's how you do it. But it seems like it might leak if you did it that way.

I have a question for RVLI---
You like to use the blazing saddles, They seem like they poke pretty far into the pipe, does this cause fluid flow problem? Can you still push the same GPM? Also is it possible that the saddles can leak around puncture hole? With a little wiggling do they leak? Or are they as good as it gets?

I really don't know that much about the blazing saddle t's a matter in fact this is the first time I have ever heard mention of them. I went to see what they looked like at: (blue)we
They look neat, If the situation was that I wanted to plug one off, say when I'm doing a repair, how do I go about doing that?

word has it that if any repairs are needed to be done where saddle t's were used it makes it a pain. They tend to leak if moved at all from original position. Barbed T's are better!

My only word of caution is be careful when slipping the blazing saddle over the pipe. I broke one when it was being installed because I streched it too wide.
